ATI Student Resources
and Programs

Our close relationship with the University of Texas at Austin enables ATI to make student interns available to our member companies – bridging innovation-minded, start-up experienced students with our top deep tech startups. We are highly selective in recruiting our ATI Student Associates (interns) to ensure they align with defined needs of our member companies.

Our commitment to our ATI Student Associates is to expose them to real-world issues and startup immersion; along with a business network that has career-long benefit – expanding their education beyond “grades” to actual real-world impact with evidence of experience.

ATI Student Associates and Fellows get real-world, hands-on experience working with startup companies. We want smart, motivated, disciplined students regardless of their degree program or status. APPLY NOW

The LaunchPad program at the University of Texas at Austin helps students succeed in their entrepreneurial ventures. Open to students and alumni of all majors, the LaunchPad enables participants to receive one-on-one mentoring, grow their network, and access resources to accelerate the success of their businesses. The LaunchPad allows students to explore entrepreneurship at their own pace, while creating an inclusive cross-disciplinary environment that encourages students to make an impact.

The SEAL program, founded by ATI in 2009, picks the most promising startups emerging from the wide range of entrepreneurial programs at the University of Texas at Austin – along with other universities and community entrepreneurs – to help them confront the next Go / No-Go decision. The intensive summer program creates an environment for student entrepreneurs to discover whether or not it’s time to go all in.
